Meet our Librarians
Head Librarian Alicia Kershaw has been pouring her heart into the library since December 2006 and when she worked over in the old historic library. She became Director in September 2007 and was an integral part of moving into our "new" location. She enjoys the friendships she shares with the patrons and doing her part to help the Martin community. Toddler Time just may be her favorite library special every week. In her spare time, Alicia enjoys spending time with her family, cheering on any Martin team and running her three plus miles a day.
Librarian Assistant Denise Dykstra joined the staff in October 2010 and works part time. Denise works on all the social media aspects of the library. Denise enjoys spending time with her family (and beagle Liberty) and also writing on her personal blog when she is not running her boys around to sports activities.
Library Worker Regina Shettler joined the library in 2016 and is our Tech Support person. She also has a vast knowledge of books thanks to her avid reading and years as a school librarian. Regina enjoys gardening, reading on her front porch and being with her family.
On any given day, and especially on very busy days, you are sure to see our Library mainstay helper Alice Kelsey. Our library would be lost with out this amazing library volunteer and we just love our Alice!
Our staff is working hard to make the library here in our home town of Martin the best little library it can be for our patrons. Please feel free to come in and get to know your library!
